No spoilers.

Because it was honestly pointless.

It was gross.

I actually felt as though the show was telling me "You're so dumb! Here's another sex joke! Oh look, sexual harassment is fucking hilarious."

Danny had a few brilliant lines; Schnauzer? Made me laugh out loud.

He also made a homophobic dig, which I have to say, I was not expecting and was actually very uncomfortable about. Because that isn't Danny, or at least, it wasn't. Danny was never the guy who needed to make a dig regarding some other man's masculinity in order to be funny or to take him down a notch.

On the Watson level, I need to reconcile that statement with what I know and the narrative that's been woven into Danny's character.

On the Doyle level, I want to fucking punch whoever wrote that line on principle and that fact that Danny said it in particular. If that was a Scott ad lib, I think that would really crush me.

In any event, NCIS:LA, you did not sell yourself to me. I hope I never have to interact with you again.

As many of you know I haven't been around much because I have been busy finishing off my degree, working three part times jobs and going to demonstrations to make sure my country doesn't implode on itself.

I did, however, manage to distract myself thoroughly by becoming addicted to a show that should have been the biggest turn off ever.

Because #1 it's a cop buddy show, #2 it's a remake of a classic (so yeah, there was a gender switch of one the mains).

I honestly did not expect to fall so in love with Hawaii Five-0. But even more so, I never expected to fall for head over heels fannishly in love with one Scott Caan. I've known the man for years as a side-actor, more as a "Hey, it's that guy" and as the progeny of one James Caan - who is staple in my House of Cinephiles!

So, once I was lured via picspams (something which never appealed to the feminist in me, because you know, I, er, totally oppose objectification of any kind. Yeah, watch me eat my words) of Scott, I checked out the show and subsequently, Scott himself.

And here I am, posting a picspam of my own. Most likely if you follow Hawaii Five-0 fandom you have seen them all, but these are my favourites for various reasons.

We'll start off with my #1 favourite:

Way More Under The Cut )

I hope you all enjoyed that. I know I did.

Even if you're not a fan of Hawaii Five-0 and never intend to watch the show, I urge you to check this man out. I'll probably post a review of some of the better movies he's been in; I watched his bad stuff so that you don't have too!

V and Justice

V: Ah, I was forgetting that we are not properly introduced. I do not have a name. You can call me V. Madam Justice...this is V. V... this is Madam Justice. hello, Madam Justice.

Justice: Good evening, V.

V: There. Now we know each other. Actually, I've been a fan of yours for quite some time. Oh, I know what you're thinking...

Justice: The poor boy has a crush on adolescent fatuation.

V: I beg your pardon, Madam. It isn't like that at all. I've long admired you...albeit only from a distance. I used to stare at you from the streets below when I was a child. I'd say to my father, "Who is that lady?" And he'd say "That's Madam Justice." And I'd say "Isn't she pretty."

V: Please don't think it was merely physical. I know you're not that sort of girl. No, I loved you as a person. As an ideal.

Justice: What? V! For shame! You have betrayed me for some harlot, some vain and pouting hussy with painted lips and a knowing smile!

V: I, Madam? I beg to differ! It was your infidelity that drove me to her arms!

V: Ah-ha! That surprised you, didn't it? You thought I didn't know about your little fling. But I do. I know everything! Frankly, I wasn't surprised when I found out. You always did have an eye for a man in uniform.

Justice: Uniform? Why I'm sure I don't know what you're talking about. It was always you, V. You were the only one...

V: Liar! Slut! Whore! Deny that you let him have his way with you, him with his armbands and jackboots!

V: Well? Cat got your tongue? I though as much.

V: Very well. So you stand revealed at last. you are no longer my justice. You are his justice now. You have bedded another.

Justice: Sob! Choke! Wh-who is she, V? What is her name?

V: Her name is Anarchy. And she has taught me more as a mistress than you ever did! She has taught me that justice is meaningless without freedom. She is honest. She makes no promises and breaks none. Unlike you, Jezebel. I used to wonder why you could never look me in the eye. Now I know. So good bye, dear lady. I would be saddened by our parting even now, save that you are no longer the woman I once loved.
